4Happy are those who trust the Lord,
who do not turn to idols
or join those who worship false gods.
The Golden Text is from the Good News Translation in Today's English Version—Second Edition.
1I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O Lord, will I sing.
2I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
3I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:
4A froward heart shall depart from me:
7He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
28. . . the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.
29For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
30As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
31For who is God save the Lord? or who is a rock save our God?
32It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
